    Knife Works..

    I knew I should have ordered from GPKnives, but they didn't have them up until a few days later......

    I won't make that mistake ever again.... ;)

    I pre-ordered this knife through Knifecenter about 2 weeks ago and I got an e-mail from them yesterday saying the knife would ship in 5 to 7 days.

    I actually called about that and they said the 5-7 days email was a standard one that didn't actually reflect anything. I tried asking about shipments, confirmation that I would get one, and dates but they only said that they didn't know when they would get them, didn't know how many they would get, and that they were expecting more shipments besides the initial one and would fill the pre-orders in order of placement.

    The anticipation is killing me :(

    You have got to be effin kidding me... this is horse sh(t.... i put my order in back in March and i have received jack and sh(t from them on this. Email inbound to knifecenter. I hate dealing with them more and more.
    No offense meant to the poster, its about my order not being filled, lol

    The email he got was a standard reply one for pre-orders/out of stock. It is still disappointing for knifecenter to give almost no clear information on this when others are already getting theirs and have dates.

    Got mine today. Nice even grinds, nicely sharpened, well centered. The brown G10 is surprisingly (to me) good looking. It's earth brown, not the coyote tan-brown. Very nice overall. Thanks to Sal and all. :thumbup:

    ahh thanks for the clarification. Yeah, i think they are a big company or such. I actually have had better communication and attitude from KW then KC.. but thats another topic. Now to start looking who has some of these for sale since KC will likely fall through again for me. I feel Fleabay coming on ugh...

    What are you going to do with the scales? BTW you should have gone with GPK. I got an e-mail from them this afternoon. I had forgotten I had pre-ordered this knife from them. It's shipping tomorrow.

    I really need to take this to Good Bad and ugly, because you wont believe the stupid email replies i get from that company. Thank God i saved the emails so if anyone doubts.....

    anyways still waiting and hoping a miracle will happen.

    May have to swallow my pride and wait for someone to flip a extra here

    I'm guessing the scales will remain the same. It's the bevels that won't stay pristine for long, IMHO. :D

    i'm a bit late to the party but i've just received my brown military from KW.

    this one is excellent. it has the most polished edge i've seen on a new spydie and i don't know if it's me but the G10 also feels a tad more gripy than usual, not coarser but "sharper" if this makes sense.

    love the color too.
